Girlguiding Edinburgh

Who We Are

Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK. We build girls’ confidence and raise their aspirations. We give them the chance to discover their full potential and encourage them to be a powerful force for good. We give them a space to have fun.

Rainbows is all about developing self-confidence, building friendships, learning new things and having fun.

Girls get together every week for one hour enjoying games, cookery, outings and arts and crafts.


Rainbows follow a programme called the Rainbow Jigsaw, which is split into four parts: Look, Learn, Laugh, Love.

Look: We encourage girls to look around them, learn about their own environment/community and understand that they are part of a wider world.

Learn: Rainbows learn by taking part in a wide range of activities such as trying out crafts and recipes, playing games and visiting local places of interest.

Laugh: Rainbows have lots of fun. Meetings involve games, songs, parties, celebrations and making a mess! Girls love sleepovers too!

Love: Through Rainbows, girls learn about caring and sharing with family and friends, working together, fair play, and being considerate and helpful to others.

Suitable for ages 5 - 7.

If your daughter would like to join the over 1,000 Rainbows in the Edinburgh area, please get in touch.
